French journalist sees 'revolution' in Vatican's new policy for Caritas

CWN - May 27, 2011

By insisting that the agency must preserve a distinct Catholic identity, he observes approvingly, Pope Benedict has regained control of “an entire sector of the activity of the Catholic Church.”

    This is very good news! And great comfort to the laity to see the successor of St. Peter in charge of the church. Please pray for our Holy father to bring back the full teachings of our Lord and our true catholic identity!
